Tool to organize a secret santa (tradition in which members of a group or community are randomly assigned a person to whom they anonymously give a gift). This tradition is also known as: pige de noel, Kris Kringle, amigo secreto, amigo invisible, Christkindl, or simply gift exchange. This tool sends an e-mail to all participants with the assigned person to whom they will give a gift.

@Jason For the moment you cannot specify exceptions. It would be an interesting feature to add in a future update.

This looks very useful! Is there a way to specify exceptions, for example, if a husband and wife are participating in the exchange, they probably should not draw each other's name. Thanks.
